Projects per year
My principal research interest and publications cut across the disciplinary boundaries of International Relations theory and Chinese history, politics, economic transformation and international relations. My core research informs and is informed by the ‘English School’ tradition in International Relations theory, but the broad theoretical approach I adopt is more appropriately regarded as eclectic. I have also published in the area of the political economy of Chinese global businesses and that of East Asian regionalism and regional security in the Asia-Pacific. One of my current research projects is on International Relations in Ancient China: Ideas, Institutions and Law, an interdisciplinary enquiry drawing upon Chinese political philosophy, history of ideas, ancient history and theories of international relations. This project is supported by a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship awarded for the 2015-2017 period.
